A group has been set up in Glasgow to keep alive the memory of the first sunrise of the Trade Union movement'. The Calton Weavers from the East End of Glasgow became Scotland's first working-class martyrs' when six of them were killed by soldiers sent in to quell their strike. The incident - at Drygate Bridge in 1787 - was the earliest major industrial dispute in Scottish history. Those who died were buried in the Calton Cemetery in Abercromby Street, but the graveyard has become dilapidated over the years.
